Patchwork By Sea has moved.

We spent 4 days over Easter moving our shop from Jetty Road Brighton to 5/365 Brighton Road Hove SA 5048. Such a huge amount of work in moving a patchwork shop I can assure you. Not just what you see in the front of the shop, but also the classroom and all the behind the scene Bom's fabric and a whole lot more :).
It is sad to move the shop from the street where it began back in October 1998. The street has become so busy and parking difficult, so we felt it was time to move our business to a bigger and brighter shop with ample parking at the rear.

This is what is left at the Jetty Road shop now and we have to clean and smarten it up for the next tenant.

And this is how everything got to the new address ! Yep I was a truckers wife for a few days!! 
Can't tell you how many loads we had already done before this one !

And now for the reveal of the new shop.

What do you think? We have updated the logo colours and the signs really stand out, just as we had wanted them too. The sign design is also being used on our new web site we are having built and is coming very soon.

And this is a sneak peek of the inside from out side the front door. More photos next week after the Gala Opening which takes part all of next week. We have Nikki Tervo as a guest designer with us for the opening and she will be releasing some brand new designs at our Gala opening on Monday night.
Terry and I would like to thank everyone for your support and look forward to your continued support in our new and exciting shop. With your continued support we can grow bigger and better into the future.

Hope you have a wonderful day where ever you are :)
Happy Quilting

Rob's wedding

We have had the pleasure of flying to Bali with our daughter Alynda her husband Jon and our youngest son Peter and his partner Ally for my eldest son Robert's wedding just over a week ago. We were privileged to welcome Robert's bride Joey into our family.
I hope you don't mind this proud mum sharing some wedding photo's with you.

Bride and groom with parents.

The beautiful reception table
 The beautiful people of Bali and the resort we stayed in during our stay has stolen my heart and I am already looking forward to my next visit day :0)

Hope you have a wonderful day where ever you are :)
